Colbert sings ‘Islands in the Stream’ with Kenny Rogers

Published

on

Stephen Colbert took a break from his Comedy Central show on Tuesday to guest host ABC’s Good Morning America and performed a duet with country star Kenny Rogers while he was there.

“The fact that I’m going to sing a duet with Stephen Colbert just really wraps up my life,” the 74-year-old Rogers said before taking the microphone to sing his hit number one song “Islands in the Stream,” which he originally performed with Dolly Parton.

“Islands in the stream / That is what we are / No one in-between / How can we be wrong / Sail away with me to another world / And we rely on each other, ah-ah / From one lover to another, ah-ah.”

“What an honor to play Dolly Parton to your Kenny Rogers,” Colbert said after the a capella performance.

Rogers noted that he was disappointed that People Magazine had included Colbert in their “100 Sexy Men in One Minute” video online in 2011 and was also selected as one of the top sexy “men with glasses” in 2007. (He was also voted Maxim‘s 69th hottest woman in America in 2012, but that’s a different story.)

“You’re the sexiest grandpa,” Colbert replied. “Do you have grandchildren?”

“No, but I do have couple boys who are eight years old,” Rogers explained.

“You do?” Colbert exclaimed. “You got some lead in the pencil, man.”

In Brave New Films’ latest #YouthInAction series, we get a glimpse of what it’s like to organize this event through the perspective of the MoCo students themselves. Watch as they fight for their survival.

Trump’s deportation threat is ‘literally not possible’ — he’s just trying to ‘terrorize families’: MSNBC reporter

Published

on

MSNBC's Jacob Soboroff condemned President Donald Trump's threat to arrest and deport millions of migrants living in the U.S. as impractical, implausible and immoral.

The reporter has been covering the Trump administration's family separation policy since last year, and he's toured the overcrowded detention facilities where children have died after they were taken from their parents at the border, and Soboroff said the president was only making things worse.

"Donald Trump is a human billboard for illegal migration, the way he's talking about this," Soboroff said. "When he came into the office, and the numbers dipped, they called it the Trump effect and people were scared. People aren't scared of Donald Trump anymore, and they are rushing to the country."

Mitch McConnell busted on CNN as the ‘ringmaster’ leaving the door open for more Russian election interference

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNN's John Avlon broke down how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is every bit the obstacle to secure and safe elections as President Donald Trump is.

"There should be things that transcend petty politics, and towards the top of that list is stopping foreign powers from interfering in our elections," said Avlon, playing a clip of former special counsel Robert Mueller warning about the dangers. "Robert Mueller's warning is again, falling on willfully deaf ears. We know that foreign powers continue to try to meddle in our elections. Trump's FBI director and Director of National Intelligence have made this crystal clear."
